On Thursday, CNN Political Director David Chalian expressed concern that President Joe Biden’s “troublingly low” approval ratings might hurt his reelection bid.
A new CNN survey by SSRS shows that Biden’s reelection campaign would be difficult.
Forty-six percent of respondents said they would vote for the Republican presidential candidate over Biden, and former South Carolina governor Nikki Haley defeated him in a hypothetical battle.
When asked about the economy, 70% of respondents said things were going poorly, with 58% blaming Biden’s policies. Only a third of those surveyed expressed satisfaction with the president’s performance in office.
Between August 25 and 31, 2015, 1,503 persons, representing a nationwide sample, participated in the survey. 1,259 registered voters participated in the survey, including 391 Democratic-leaning independent voters as well as Democrat party members. The margin of error was +/-3.5.
Chalian claims Biden’s popularity rating has been stagnant at historically low levels of concern for the president. He said Biden’s popularity among Democrats is lower now than it was in July. His approval rating among fellow party members is 74%. With just 36% support from independents. “The president is in trouble,” said Challan.
According to a recent survey conducted by Quinnipiac University, a hypothetical showdown between President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump in 2024 is statistically tied.
The survey, which was issued on Wednesday, gives Biden a lead of 1 point over Trump, 47% to 46%. The poll’s margin of error is +/- 2.4%. There was no change from the previous month’s totals.
Trump’s continued dominance in the Republican primary makes a runoff between the current and the former president a real possibility.
Among Republican voters, Trump has support from 62%, followed by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (12%) and businessman Vivek Ramaswamy (6%). Sixty-eight percent of Trump supporters surveyed stated they remain unwavering in their support for the candidate.
